Drafting an Extended 2-piece Sleeve

You will learn how to draft a 2-piece sleeve with an extended cap, that you can use on any of your structured designs, such as on blouses, dresses and jackets. While this sleeve is mostly used on tailored garments, because of its seaming, it is also perfect for inserting ruffles. View our Cascade Ruffle Sleeve lesson for inspiration.

The sleeve sloper needed for this lesson can be found and drafted in our Pattern making lesson: Straight Sleeve Sloper.
